Re: quick launch disappears each reboot (xp)
My fix to the Quick Launch required adding another changed setting to my regedit. Thanks to Correz for getting me started in the right direction.
For those of you still having trouble after following the other options. I would like to offer up an additional registry key that I found to fix my problem.
Correz fix involved one registry key, mine offers two keys.
change the NoSaveSettings value to "0"
Change this setting also to NoSaveSettings value to "0"
Close Regedit/restart the computer/ ensure that the Quick Launch Toolbar is ticked via right click on taskbar/toolbar/tick quick launch. "DO NOT TICK LOCK THE TASKBAR"
Restart the computer a second time!!!
After I verified that my Quick Launch toolbar was indeed back, I had one minor problem, I wasn't able to arrange the icon's in the order I prefer in any of my Quick Launch Folders. My system just wouldn't drop and drag for the order arrangement, no matter what I tried.......until
I arranged the icons in the order of my choice, on the Quick Launch taskbar by dropping and dragging inside the taskbar, then right click on the taskbar to bring up Task bar and Start menu Properties, under Taskbar, I ticked the box, Group similar taskbar buttons, and poof my pre-arranged order corrected itself and now it comes up the exact way I prefer.
Hope that if all else fails anyone, that this method is helpful. I also know that my problem appeared after I did SP2, and yes I did indeed have the regedit tweek in my system under the SP1. I believe this is where the problem for me came in anyways.
